Dear Student

Z=\frac{p \tilde{V}}{R T}

where, p is the pressure, \tilde{V} is the molar volume of the gas, T is the temperature, and R is the gas constant.

For an ideal gas the compressibility factor is Z = 1 per definition

The reduced temperature and pressure are defined as:

  T_r = \frac{T}{T_c} and  P_r = \frac{P}{P_c}

Tc and Pc are known as the critical temperature and critical pressure of a gas. They are characteristics of each specific gas with Tc being the temperature above which it is not possible to liquify a given gas and Pc is the minimum pressure required to liquify a given gas at its critical temperature.

 T_r = \frac{T}{T_c + 8} and  P_r = \frac{P}{P_c + 8}


now you can eliminate T and P and put in terms of critical temp and pressure.


All the best.
